On 19 August Orthodox believers celebrate one of the 12 most important Christian holidays - the Transfiguration of the Lord God and Savior of our Jesus Christ.
The feast of the Transfiguration is associated with an ancient custom – blessing of fruits of the new harvest. In Belarus, these are apples as a rule. Residents of Brest have their fruits blessed in St. Simeon's Cathedral.
